Tough But Fair Challenge
Played this course for the first time two years ago and did not like it. Course conditions were poor, and I was not a fan of narrow fairways with OB and red stakes on either side of most fairways. Played it for the second time today, and I came away with a better appreciation for it. Conditions were still the same, but I focused more on shot placement and was rewarded. Only lost one ball in the protected marsh areas that you are not allowed to go in to. Driving range is still a disaster.....you must hit off mats that warped, torn and not level. Range balls are so old most are smooth with no dimples. DO NOT attempt to walk this course. Too hilly and long stretches between greens and next tee box.

Great place to spend the day
We have played this course numerous times. From the time we arrive till the time we left it was a great experience, The staff let us get an early start. There were only about 3 groups playing. The course was in great shape. We got to see wild life and some very scenic areas. What a great place to play. We will definitely be back before the closing on October 7th.
Thanks again for a great day.
Your feedback is important to us, cjim. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon! Thanks for choosing Shining Mountain Golf Club.

A course worth playing
Mountain course at 8200'. Scenic views of Pike Peak. Course in amazing condition. Some blind shots and you better hit it straight down the middle. Even then, it could roll off the fairway. Fast greens, chip shots didn't hold and putts were quick. I wouldn't recommend trying to walk, you need to be a Billy goat on the back 9 especially. Loved the course and hope to play it again.
jonespar15, thank you for your kind words! We hope to see you again at the course very soon for another 5-star experience. Thanks for choosing Shining Mountain Golf Club.
New management(?) is tired...
The idea that an 18-hole course exists in Woodland Park is pretty amazing, much appreciated. That said, how hard can it be run the place like an actual business instead of an unorganized startup? The cart paths are 'fun' because of the possibility of crashing a cart into one of the 3-foot deep ravines from rain wash. Some run-off mitigation would save the cart paths from further damage, and carts from becoming tired and abused. The black mold on the greens has begun to subside. How did it get a foothold in the first place (neglect)? At peak it was pretty disgusting and makes one wonder if they are bringing the stuff home. The course is fully bring-your-own beer (BYOB). The beer cart is atrociously unreliable and the rear axle appears about to fall off. Last time the driver was MIA and seen with the cart in the bushes (boyfriend? pot? sleeping?). This time, the drivers minor child was on board while the back 9 only was covered. By the time we made it to the back 9 the beer cart was parked back at the clubhouse. Finally, accepting feedback isn't an art form, there's a right way and wrong way. The right way: pay attention, grab a pen and paper and start writing. Repeat back a summary of what you heard from your notes. ASK what the customer's expectation is of the affected service. Indicate your notes will be delivered to the right person. Follow up! When someone complains to you they will definitely complain to their friends!
We're very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your round with us. We will pass along your detailed feedback to our management staff to take into consideration.
Shame it was cart path only due to rain and course staff failing to not water.

Mountain Course With Mountain Views
My wife and I played this course twice during the first week of September. We try to play every time we are in the Woodland Park area. The views of Pikes Peak and the surrounding mountains are amazing. This is a unique and challenging golf course. The greens are uniformly in great shape and fast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Playing this course represents one of the highlights of our vacation.
Thank you for taking the time to review us 0p8vjrnsNBjXDuEmu95v. Your feedback is valuable, and we look forward to delivering you excellent service again soon. Shining Mountain Golf Club thanks you!
Disc Golf Review
The disc golf courses off the main golfing course are excellent. WELL maintained!!!
Played the course on the traditional golf course as well. Pristine...
I lost a disc that I love. It was returned to the club house. Bre, an awesome employee
drove my disc back to me in the Springs. Unbelievable. I tried to tip her and she refused.
I wish I could remember one more gal's name that drove the refreshments because she was a
doll that Saturday the 1st of Sept. I haven't experienced this kind of hospitality in years. Thanks

Fairways, greens, rough all in excellent condition. Such a beautiful, fun course to play with great views of Pikes Peak.

Picnic or a 4some?
Three ladies riding and two “support” dogs is more of a picnic than ever a foursome. Hard to believe the course allowed it. Dressed like a dirty hippie and brought the entourage. Pretty ridiculous but a beautiful course
We're very sorry to hear about your experience. We will pass along your feedback to our management staff.
Don’t waste your money
If you mow a six yard strip down the middle of your hay field you’ll have a comparable course. Don’t waste your money but if you do bring lots of balls. It’s s six yard wide fairway and then 2 foot high weeds. And don’t bother to inquire about pin placement because the dude in the pro shop doesn’t know.
We're sorry to hear that you found the course too challenging.
Great day in the mountains!
Overall very good experience. First time playing here, so a little confusing because some of the forward red tee markers were either gone or very hard to find. We ended up making our own tee box on two holes! Challenging greens, lots of slope But staff was great, lunch was great, will definitely play here again. We are three ladies who shoot in the high 40s.
Your feedback is important to us, u314159478208. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon! Thanks for choosing Shining Mountain Golf Club.
Play here every time we get to go to Colorado from Texas. Love It!
Links, hills, marsh...be very accurate
I'm a solid 2 GHIN. Carded 77 from tips...miss fairway lost (don't bother looking) or lateral hazard. Played behind 4 locals, searched for balls on 13 of18 holes...boring. Greens = Great. Fairways = Really Nice. Holes have nice variety of length, up and down, left and right. If you can pick your target and distance you'll have fun. Range and range balls worst ever.
